Misty Fjords
The mist or fog that gives this place its name is starting to form near the rear of the photograph.  The fjords of Misty Fjords National Monument were carved by glaciers through the mountains
of the panhandle of southern Alaska.  This formed deep valleys, which connected to the Pacific Ocean and filled with seawater. The area has high precipitation so a relatively clear day like this
is a rare event.

The Behm Canal is seen in the background.
